Next week, the children will be carrying out various fun activities as it's the last week of school.

However, I still have some maths I would like to complete with them. :) The children will be completing problem solving questions related to money.

Update

Maths

I have decided that next week the children will continue to learn about time so I will move the maths objectives I had planned to cover to the following week.

The children will learn to tell the time to the hour, quarter to, quarter past, half past, to the nearest 5minutes and to the nearest minute. They will also try to solve problem solving questions related to time.
